Stage one of this process is that three colors available for the 2021 Chevy Traverse will be removed from the list before production ends. Dealers will be able to order Cajun Red Tintcoat only until the order cycle on April 22nd,until April 29th and Satin Steel Metallic until May 13th.
For the 2021 model year, Graphite Metallic and Satin Steel Metallic are both included in the price of the Traverse, while Cajun Red Tintcoat is offered as a $495 option. All three are available in the LT, RS, Premier and High Country trim levels, but not on the base L and LS.
The trio will no longer be available for the 2022 Traverse. Instead, they will be replaced by Northsky Blue Metallic, Silver Sage Metallic and Cherry Red Tintcoat, bringing the total number of colors for Chey’s largest crossover back up to eight.
The Chevy Traverse was one of many General Motors vehicles which was scheduled to receive a mid-cycle enhancement (MCE) for the 2022 model year. However, this was pushed back due to complications arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. The interior and exterior designs along with some interior elements will be updated, while the powertrain will remain the same.

The 2021 Traverse was Chevrolet’s third – and GM’s fourth – best-selling vehicle in the United States in Q1 of 2021, with 38,037 units sold. It was beaten only by the Chevy Silverado pickup truck (126,591 units), Chevy Equinox crossover (63,218 units) and GMC Sierra pickup truck (62,917 units). The Chevy Malibu – the last Chevrolet sedan still in production – was next up, at 26,987 units.
The current Traverse rides on the long-wheelbase variant of the GM C1 platform shared with the North American-market Buick Enclave. It is built at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan. The only engine available for the 2021 model year is the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LFY gasoline motor, which produces 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. The atmospheric six is paired with GM’s nine-speed automatic transmission.
